Tesla Model X Light Show and Trans-Siberian Orchestra Easter Egg
December 1, 2020
By Nuno C.
A holiday light show will initiate using the headlights, fog lights and turn signals. Wizards in Winter by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra will play and portions of the vehicle, including the front doors and the falcon wing back doors will open and close in time with the music, without assistance. The rear view mirrors will also retract in time with the music.
The same activation can be achieved by tapping the image of a green holiday ornament in the "Easter Egg Drawer" which appears automatically shortly after the "About Your Tesla" menu is accessed. The "About your Tesla" menu can be accessed by tapping the Tesla "T" at the top right of the touchscreen display.
This easter egg only works on the Model X.
To activate this easter egg: A prolonged (5 second) press of the Tesla "T" icon at the top of the touchscreen display results in a graphic which appears as a single water ripple away from the center of the "T" icon. Once the "T" is released, a text box is revealed along with a keyboard for entering text. The text box says "please enter access code" with a text entry field below and button options "OK" and "Cancel" below that. This text box is mainly used by service centers and showrooms for things like service mode and showroom mode, but does also allow access to certain easter eggs. After entering either "holiday" or "ModelXmas" and pressing "OK", a message will instruct, "The show will begin after you exit the car, close all doors and press the lock button on the key. The show requires 6 feet of space above and around the vehicle."
